Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.

 – Henry David Thoreau

I admit, saying you are “busy” tends to have a negative connotation. However, for the go-getters, dreamers, visionaries, goal-setters, game changers and money makers (takes a breath)…it is just the truth!

If you are someone that has a family, career, friends, and hobbies, you are likely also very busy. The key is to have set goals, manage a schedule of priorities, and keep pushing to reach each milestone. Inevitably, we meet well-meaning folks that give outrageous advice. To those people I say, busy-ness is a choice.

  1. “Slow down.”

Sometimes we need a day full of Netflix and self-care forced upon us by our loved ones. However, if we didn’t have anything on our schedule, we would be told to step it up and kick it in gear.

  1. “You’re a workaholic.”

True. Maybe. Some days. The point is, some of us work 15 hours a day because our manager demands it and some of us actually enjoy working.

  1. “I didn’t ask you to go because you’re always so busy.”

Busy people typically follow a schedule but give us the opportunity to review it and make a decision on the outing.

Keep grinding. Keep working. Stay busy!

I don’t care how busy I am – I will always make time for what’s most important to me. – Kevin Hart
